The finalists' names are public (see below), however, the winners are not revealed until the evening itself.
This year's 30 finalists come from across the province and represent businesses as diverse as a unique jewelery designer, to a successful esthetic business, from a large travel agency to a well know yoga center. Every single one of these finalists has an amazing business well deserving of their finalist standing.
"Manitoba has amazing women entrepreneurs whose stories are inspiring," said Lucy Camara, President of WBOM and owner of Olatech Business Hosting Corporation. "Anyone in business knows the challenges of being a successful entrepreneur. There are days when the bills exceed receivables, when challenges exceed the triumphs - but when you believe in your business, in the vision you're realizing, your passion fuels your strength to carry on. The Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Awards is an exceptional evening of celebration and fun that recognizes outstanding achievements by Manitoba women in business."
